Judge's Comments -- Brec Morgan
As a marine artist and sailor, everything about water fascinates me. My list of criteria for selecting award-winning works are:
Visual impact – use of light and design
Emotional impact – engagement of feelings
Associative capacity – does a work initiate a chain of thoughts?
Technique – is there a level of attention to the craft?

For all artists, know that my selections are necessarily personal and anyone who toils in the field of visual arts should be encouraged to continue to develop their work. We need you all.  For visitors, I hope you appreciate this especially beautiful and engaging group of water-related works.

Robert Frost said, “The job of art is to clean the dirt off the potato.”  There are a lot of water-washed potatoes to enjoy, so enjoy. Better yet, buy your favorite one and enjoy it every day!
